The Nvidia GTX 980 is the new top end Maxwell based Nvidia GPU. The Maxwell architecture offers significantly higher clock for clock performance when compared to Kepler based cards from the previous generation. Comparing the GTX 980 and GTX 970 shows that the 970 only lags by around 17% in terms of performance but it's priced nearly 40% lower making the GTX 970 far better value for money card. Even though the GTX 970 beats the 980 in terms of value, the 980 still destroys previous generation cards. Comparing the GTX 980 and 780 Ti shows that the Newer 980 offers around 14% better performance at a 25% price discount. Nvidia have changed the price/performance landscape with their new Maxwell architecture and now pose a serious threat to AMDs high end GPU market share. The new GTX 980/970 cards replace the now discontinued GTX 780 Ti, 780 and 770. [Sep '14 GPUPro]

The GTX 1080 is Nvidia’s new flagship graphics card. It features the new 16 nm (down from 28 nm) Pascal architecture. This is the first die shrink since the release of the GTX 680 at which time the manufacturing process shrunk from 40 nm down to 28 nm. In terms of typical 3D gaming performance the 1080 is around 30% faster than the GTX 980 Ti and it manages to deliver the additional performance with a TDP of just 180 Watts which is 70 Watts less than the 980 Ti. The new Pascal architecture delivers a satisfying jump in performance over Maxwell and the GTX 1080 is now the fastest single GPU available. Over the coming months older generation cards will likely see significant price drops as the better value for money 1070, 1060 and 1050 cards slowly replace their predecessors. [May '16 GPUPro]
